“In the pages of Native, Kaitlin B. Curtice is a poet, professor, storyteller, and unapologetic truth teller. This book is required reading for all those committed to learning the truth about the land we live on and the institutions we live inside of. It both stretched me and comforted me—it called me out and called me home. Curtice is a vital artist and teacher, and Native is her most important offering yet. It will remain on my shelf forever.”—Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed and founder of Together Rising
